One of the most inspiring new series' for kids to emerge in the past year is Disney's Elena of Avalor. The first Latin-inspired Disney Princess was an immediate hit, quickly becoming a fixture at Disney Parks, and becoming one of Disney Channel's most-watched animated shows. After being held captive in the Amulet of Avalor for over four decades, Elena was freed by Sofia the First and has returned to her kingdom as a brave and adventurous teenager who must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen. As kids follow Elena's journey, they see the adventure unfold as she learns her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders. With Elena of Avalor: Ready to Rule now available on DVD, here's a look at some great gift ideas as part of my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide!
As the father of two girls, I completely appreciate the news that the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and Disney Channel are teaming up to inspire girls and their families to practice leadership. Starting today, The ELENA OF AVALOR Leadership Guide by Girl Scouts and Disney Channel is available now as a FREE PDF Download in both English and Spanish from the Disney Channel website. Pairing the GSUSA’s focus on leading like a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)TM, the Girl Scout way, and the recently-launched series ELENA OF AVALOR, the Guide showcases leadership activities and conversations parents and caregivers can engage their preschool through fifth-grade girls in to boost their everyday leadership skills and prepare them to create the future they imagine.
We are truly in a wonderful time for kids and family television, and one of the most-anticipated new series' for The Rock Daughters™ now has a premiere date. Princess Elena of Avalor will make her royal debut in ELENA OF AVALOR, with a one-hour premiere event FRIDAY, JULY 22 (7:00-8:00 p.m., EDT), on Disney Channel. The spin-off of Disney Junior's SOFIA THE FIRST is set in the enchanted fairytale land of Avalor, telling the story of Elena, a brave and adventurous teenager who has saved her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen. Elena's journey will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders.
There's a lot of different ways we could go with this, the royally regal National Princess Week being officially upon us. With two girls, my wife and I are well-versed in the ways and needs of young Royals in 2016. As a King of sorts myself, I can throw-down plenty of knowledge when it comes to the trade partners of Arendelle or the allies of Enchancia. Having just visited Walt Disney World as a family for the first time this month, The Rock Daughters met many a Princess first-hand, and while the traditional likes of Cinderella and Rapunzel are certainly prevalent both there and at home, it's a much younger Princess - one whose mother married into Royalty - that maintains the top spot here at Rock Father HQ: Sofia the First. Indeed, the title character from the Disney Junior hit his held in high regard - a highlight of our visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios, and a character that both of our girls played in a Broadway Beginners production of SOFIA & JAKE: A PRINCESS & PIRATE ADVENTURE. All that said, for National Princess Week I'm featuring the new Sofia the First Mermaid Magic Princess Doll by Just Play Products.
This October, a familiar face is coming to Enchancia... Merida from Disney•Pixar's BRAVE. On Monday, October 12, Sofia's Aunt Tilly returns to give her a gift that will unlock a secret world and appoint Sofia storykeeper of magical books in SOFIA THE FIRST: THE SECRET LIBRARY, the first episode of a four-part story arc, debuting on Disney Channel (9:00 a.m., ET/PT) and Disney Junior (7:00 p.m., ET/PT).
